On a prepared backing spread you can put as many photos as you like in the layout. Remember to keep the margin of 5mm bleed, although it may not cut off during bookbinding. For this reason we ask that you fill the workspace with a picture(s) including the 5mm margin. However do not include important elements of the project inside the margin eg. subtitles, the heads of people in the photo(s) etc..

 
 

When the project spreads are ready, you should save them as a .jpg file and number them in the order as they are in the photo album, eg.


01.jpg
02.jpg
.........
20.jpg

 

In this way you create every spread, which will consist of your photo album.

Create the personalized cover

 

The next step in creating your project is the choice of cover. You will find them in the Photo Album PRO tab and in our gallery.

 

WARNING!

The method of preparation for album covers are very different from cover photos. It is therefore important to create them in accordance with the instructions below.

 

  In the case of albums with photo frames, you will need to prepare a photo(s) which will be placed on it. You can see the sizes of the windows below.

  Personalized photo covers are prepared in the following way: width of the album cover is the width of the spreads + 3cm bleed from each side + thickness of the spine. The height of the album cover is the height of the spreads + 3cm bleed from each side. The front and back covers are distinguished as a "safe area" - photos or graphics that are included on the covers will not be found on either the bending at the corner or on the spine. The safe area is the size of the photo book minus 1cm from each side.
 
800g/m2 - 0,86mm
Width of the album cover = width of the spreads + (number of spreads + 1) x thickness of the spreads + 6cm
Height of the album cover = height of the spreads + 6cm
 

 

 

 

Templates for the album covers (with bleeds and workspace) can be downloaded from here.
